Pooped Out On Friday !

This is Bailee within two minutes of saying "I'm so sleepy and turning away from the Harry the Potter movie on TV at 10:15 pm." Cassie is still watching it with her fingers in her ears. You know how it is - never mind what you watch as long as you don't hear it, it's okay.

I was off this week for Columbus Day - cleaned out closets, decorated house, made a typical aggravating trip to Walmart & Kroger, then home again. Wednesday, the girls were out of school - Teacher work day. I took off too. I had their pictures made, Cassie had an Orthodontist appointment and we just hung out together. I took them to a new portrait studio, Portrait Innovations, in the new Renaissance mall in Ridgeland. Great place - wonderful photos, GREAT prices, you leave right then with your pictures and they also give you a CD of every pose. I will post more pictures later.

Tomorrow I will be participating in the Breast Cancer Walk in Jackson. Very worthy cause - I look forward to it. I will post pictures from the even too.

I'm off !

Teeth, Shots & Cancer !

This week has been another busy one. Tuesday, both girls had dental appointments. Teeth look great - found out that Bailee has three - yes 3 - loose teeth. Do you think I knew before Dr. Cook did? No way - she never tells you anything. She has a high tolerance for pain and I guess she is not really worried about the Tooth Fairy coming. I feel sort of left out :-(

Tonight, they went and got their flu shots. At our doctor's office it's like a cattle ranch - herd them in and herd them out. You go in, get in a certain line depending on your "appointment" time, you fill out papers, you go back, you get shots, you pay and you leave. Parking was a nightmare! The shots are small this year, they don't hurt but Lord knows you wouldn't be able to tell that from the crying & screaming going on. The child mentioned in paragraph one above who has a high tolerance for pain was basically scared of the needle and everyone in our family will verify for me that she belongs in the Guiness Book of World Records for her screaming needless to say, EVERYONE knew we were there. I think the folks hanging around in the parking lot even knew. Cassie, on the other hand, was a trooper. Chin quivered but didn't cry - trying to help Bailee's feelings I think. Daddy was sweating bullets - literally bullets - he absolutely HATES needles but he went and helped. They got to eat out - their choice :-)

Now - on to the cancer. I am walking for Breast Cancer on the 18th. Tonight I have also made two cakes - one to sell in our work bake sale for raising money. It is a Praline Bundt Cake and smells wonderful. I made a second one just for us:-) Going to have late dessert and go to bed. If I've emailed you about giving to this wonderful cause, please donate to help - we all know someone, maybe even you, who has been affected by breast cancer.

Later gators;)
